Cove Colony Residence,Malibu A white cube on a 50 foot wide ocean front lot is carved to create a house of light and shade. Boundaries are dissolved and space expanded with the continuity of materials and forms used indoors and out to make maximum use of minimum space.
Painted wood grillwork is used in and out, horizontal and vertical - as walls, windows, railings, lattice - providing a strong unifying element which leads, separates, and defines spaces while creating privacy from nearby neighbors.
3400 sq. ft. of living and sleeping space revolves around the two-story skylit entry. Upstairs bedrooms and library take advantage of this light through windows that overlook the atrium. Light and views are everywhere while privacy is maintained.
